The Frozen Throne Sells Over 1 Million Copies
11:16 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Blizzard today announced that Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the expansion pack for Warcraft III, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide, according to EDI sell-through, internal company estimates, and reports from key retail accounts around the world. It marks the eighth Blizzard title to sell 1 million copies and to reach #1 in U.S. sales.

Here's more from the official PR:

"We are very excited about the worldwide demand for 'Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne,'" stated Mike Morhaime, Blizzard Entertainment president and co-founder. "We put a lot of effort into giving players more of everything that 'Warcraft(R) III: Reign of Chaos(TM)' offered, in addition to a host of new features, and the expansion set's popularity tells us that our long hours and hard work have paid off."

"'Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne' is one of the largest PC expansion set releases for us since 'Diablo II: Lord of Destruction' in June 2001. We had high expectations for 'The Frozen Throne,' and it's turned out to be a solid hit," stated Bob McKenzie, director of merchandising for GameStop, Babbages, Software Etc., and FuncoLand. "From what we've seen with previous 'Warcraft' products and other Blizzard games, we expect 'Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne' to remain on the top-10 lists for some time to come."

"Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne" provides gamers with a vast new chapter in the epic 'Warcraft' saga. In the single-player campaigns, players revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth. Several months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the battle of Mount Hyjal, but now a new evil threatens to plunge Azeroth into darkness once again.

"Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne" expands on every aspect of "Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos," with new Heroes, monsters, magical items, merchant shops, tilesets, over 20 new missions for the single-player campaigns, a bonus RPG-style mini-campaign, and an enhanced user interface designed to give players more control than ever before. Players will also be pleased to find that each army has been bolstered with powerful new units that add even more depth and strategic elements to the "Warcraft III" experience. Expanded multiplayer options include support for automated tournaments, extensive clan support, and many new maps to explore and do battle on. The game's powerful World Editor has also received significant enhancements, including the ability to link maps together to create custom campaigns.

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is available through the IMG Store.
